New Stitch Markers

I have been working on the Goddess's Anniversary Mystery Shawl KAL. Even though I cheated on the circular cast on, it is a must to use stitch markers. All the markers that I had made last year did not work on the lace weight yarn. I had used jump rings to attach the beads. So, off to Hobby Lobby. I bought 2 packages of silver head pins, added the beads, then wrapped the wires around an old 10.5 knitting needles and finished with a wrapped loop. I used a tutorial from Fire Mountain Gems.

Voila, new stitch markers that don't catch the lace yarn.

Monkey Shines

I finished the Monkey for my daughter's teacher. I used the pattern from Monty the Monkey. Also, I tried to use the modifications from Meowkat on Ravelry. I guess it came out okay.
This is my show n tell for the Memphis Knitting Guild meeting next Tuesday. Then off to the teacher.

Specific details are on my ravelry page.
